“Excited? Yes”, admits Fernando Alonso


The FIA ​​joined the same official press conference in Sakhir on Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz, which was conducted during the lunch break and before they both replaced their colleagues for the afternoon session. So the balance is a bit blurred.

The Asturian stressed that “we are still discovering things about the car. Last year, Aston Martin was struggling with the car and we changed the philosophy completely, 95% of the car this year is new, so I think we are only experiencing a bit with different setups and different things in the last few days.”

“I hope we can put it all together, but we will need time, we will need a few races to really exploit the full potential of the car because there is no time right now, only three days to go through all the testing elements, which is what we want.” insisted the leader of Aston Martin who carried the weight of the test in the absence due to the injury of Lance Stroll who was relieved by the young Brazilian Drugovich, the third driver.

Fernando maintained the speech that they are trying to create a good base in 2023 to be able to think big in 2024. “That’s the goal. Last year’s platform wasn’t good enough. I think with this new car we can develop it throughout the season and we can use not only 5% next year, we can use more and that will help the team to have some continuity”.

“Ultimately, all the Formula 1 teams have a similar philosophy when it comes to competing and here is the strength to be candidates for the title in the future, the new factory will be ready in the summer and the new wind tunnel will will be a key infrastructure for the future. Excited? Yes, I think it’s more than two years, but this team is showing interest to get ahead as soon as possible. With all the talent joining the team in the future, I think it’s a very good project.” , fine
